Anatomy Of Suicidal Propensity And Life's Purpose

I don't know whether committing suicide is a courageous or cowardly act. And I think, taking a specific side here would be unfair. During evolution, our thinking power enabled us to survive. But, it has also provided us an option to end a messed up life.

Suicide is a very serious psychological and philosophical problem that modern humans are facing today. Legally, it is a crime. Religion, too, never permitted this act. And, as a society, we don't want people to do it.
To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep—
But, when life becomes miserable, why would one let one's mind to suffer, when there is an option of suicide to attain peace? Why is everyone against suicide?

Probably because, suicide is the violation of human survival interest. We are an adapting species and always believe that there is a scope for better. When all doors are shut, there is always an open door and that door doesn't open by committing suicide. Also, most people who survived a suicide attempt have regretted it and they never attempted it again.

People never actually want to kill themselves. It's just they face an issue that, they think, has screwed everything and is impossible to overcome or when there is a failure of some kind. It may be failure of achieving something in profession, education, or a relationship, that we dreamt of from the very beginning.

So, what is failure actually? I think, failure is just an event that didn't go to our expectation. But, is it really a failure? We always hear from successful people that failure has been a part of their journey to the throne of success. Therefore, failure is a temporary phenomenon. We are here to live a temporary life. All these name, fame, wealth, love, bonding and emotions are there to keep us engaged and to make us happy or sad. And, it is better to be engaged in such sort of temporary activities.

I think, the problem of suicide is also because of over-socialization in the man-made environment. Despite the fact that humans are part of nature, there is a clear difference between natural and man-made environment. The nature can never instigate us to commit suicide. It has always inspire us to be strong. It is because of which we enjoy the stature of being the top species on earth.

Some people commit suicide because they don't find any purpose in life. But, when did life had a purpose? If we think about it spiritually, there has never been a purpose of our life. Life is eternal and whatever we do, it doesn't really matters!
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscover’d country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have,
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Life after death is mysterious. It is like an abandoned island from where no one can return back. Therefore, suicide cannot give us peace, instead we have to live with the ‘failure’ without any hope of rectifying it.

We have no idea whether god has created us for his purpose or we are here by coincidence. But, one thing is clear, something what we calls evolution has played an evil trick by making us aware of our unimportance.

The above quotes are the lines from Act III of Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Many Shades Of Board Exams

After an exhilarating Holi, comes the boring and haunting board exam, the exam for which no amount of preparation gives an impression of sufficiency. Students across the nation get excited as well as depressed. They are ‘excitingly depressed’. Excited to give the final exam of their school life, to enter into a new world, and depressed thinking what society would say if their marks won't be that good. Sharma Ji’s meritorious child is making things worse. While the level of questions asked in the exams has become easy these days, the quality of students being produced is decreasing, WhatsApp, Social Media and expansion of internet are to blame. The internet and smartphones may help students in their higher studies, but it misfires in case of younger kids. It only serves as a distraction, the biggest of modern times. Earlier, when kids go out to play some sports, it was treated as a distraction from studies. But now, it has been understood clearly that it wasn't seeing the

Education Emergency — Why Schools Should Open Its Doors

One sector which is silently hit by the Covid-19 pandemic the most is the education. As a precautionary measure, schools were the first to be shut even before a formal announcement of lockdown. After all, education doesn't come under the umbrella of essential services.  According to the data from UNICEF, schools for more than 168 million children globally have been completely closed for almost an entire year, and more than 888 million children worldwide continue to face disruptions to their education due to full and partial school closures.  In India, only one in four children have access to digital devices and internet connectivity. There is a large rural-urban and gender divide which is why not everyone is able to benefit the digital revolution. Such vulnerable children unable to access remote learning might never be able to get back to learning even after the pandemic fades away, and could be easily exploited as child labor.  Shifting Classes Online   To those who can access it,

Wake Up And Chase Your Dream Even If You Have To Move Abroad

At a certain point in life, we dream of moving abroad in search of better career opportunities, gain experiences, or to improve quality of life. However, it is not an overnight process; we have to face many challenges in the course of its preparation, from the very beginning, to which we find ourselves stuck and the dream remains unfulfilled. Living with a dream that cannot be fulfilled mixed with regrets is one of the most depressing feelings in the world. On several occasions, it all happens because of a foreign language. English is a cool language. It is important no doubt but it is foreign to many of us, if not most. It need not be replaced with mother tongue or native languages, but it is indispensable especially for those who aspire to go abroad for work or study. A great mathematician or a stalwart of a technical field —those who are called nerds— can eventually fail, if he is unable to express his works in the language people can understand. To reach out to the masses

Indian Olympians In Their Pursuit Of Gold

In the Olympics, Gold medal is something which is glorified and celebrated from its intrinsic value as only the top performers of their relevant sports get to hold it. Every Olympian sees gold in their fantasy while getting trained for a particular sport. In case they miss it, they need to wait for years to reattempt and compete for the top position with the young entrants of the world. That must be exhaustive and tiring task. Four years only sounds small interval. However, only those who are mentally strong can wait, train and compete again. It's certainly not a child's play. Never before has the Indians took  so much interest in sports such as Javelin throw. The cricket loving nation was mapping the distance of Javelin thrown by Neeraj Chopra with great enthusiasm. Because for the nation lacking Olympics gold medal, Neeraj was the last hope of securing it.  23-year-old Neeraj Chopra was born in an agricultural family in Panipat, Haryana. The Javelin thrower, in his childhood,

Nuclear Friction - Are We Moving Towards Nuclear Doomsday?

It was a moment of joy for the North Koreans when they heard the news that North Korea has successfully tested H-bomb on January 6th and thus “guaranteed the eternal future of the nation”. But it was also a shocking and despairing moment for others. Followed by the claim, came the condemnation from most other countries of the world including US, Japan, South Korea, and even China (supposed friend of N. Korea). But it was not unexpected that the North Koreans will do a further nuke test after the three previous ones in 2006, 2009 and 2013. But nobody on this earth, or even in space, thought that they would be able to do an H-bomb test. It was a second nuclear test only in four years during the rule of Kim Jong Un, the young head of the mafia family that controls North Korea is a sobering reminder of the progress that three generations of Kims have made in expanding their nuclear capability—despite outside efforts to curb it. Few think that North Korea has yet managed to mi

The Brand Amma - Social Work or Self Promotion

J Jayalalithaa, the actress turned Chief minister of Tamil Nadu was given the nickname " Amma " by her followers comparing to or assuming her Amma (Mother). But, she developed this nickname to be the biggest brand in Tamil Nadu, the “Amma brand”. Despite having no market value of this brand, it has a very significant value for the people of Tamil Nadu, especially the poor and the have-nots. For them, she is the goddess who is not only filling their hungry stomach but also providing them almost all basic items necessary for living a decent life (including some luxurious items too). After becoming CM, the major work Jayalalithaa's government has done is providing subsidy and freebies to the people. For instance, subsidized cheap food at canteen, packaged water, pharmacy bill, cement, free rice, free mixer grinder, spectacles, mobiles, laptops, bicycles, etc. all under brand "Amma" and at the price no other shopkeepers, manufacturers or the e-commerce compan

The Indian Society And The Struggle Of Our Sports Fraternity

India, the world’s second-most populous nation, fails to show its dominance in sports. In fact, India's performance remains terrible except in few games. So, what's holding India back when it comes to competing in world sporting events like the Olympics? First, it's the conservative Indian mindset of the Indian society. You might be aware of the saying in India “ Padhoge likhoge banoge Nawab, kheloge kudoge banoge kharab ” which translates to “You can be a king if you study, can be spoilt if you play games.” Social life of a person who took the plunge of making a career in sports in India can be challenging and demotivating. An Indian parents or teachers, being part of the society, don't consider sports as a career. They have the biggest influence in a child's future ambitions. They may scold the child that “playing a sport will get you nowhere in life, but to make a life you need to be good in academics”. In other words, young Indians are discouraged from playing s
